Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT)

By Score More The Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) is a measure of the heat stress on the human body. It is calculated using a combination of the temperature, humidity, wind speed, and solar radiation. The WBGT is a more accurate measure of heat stress than the air temperature alone, as it takes into account the effects of humidity and wind speed on the body's ability to cool itself. The WBGT is calculated using the following formula: WBGT = 0.7 * Tw + 0.2 * Tg + 0.1 * Td where: Tw is the wet bulb temperature Tg is the globe temperature Td is the dry bulb temperature The wet bulb temperature is measured using a thermometer wrapped in a wet cloth. The globe temperature is measured using a black globe thermometer. The dry bulb temperature is measured using a re...
